Chelsea announced on deadline day that they had agreed to a deal with Paris Saint-Germain to bring back Luiz, who became the world’s most expensive defender when he left London for the French capital in the summer of 2014.

His first spell lasted three years and brought Champions League and Europa League triumphs, as well as an FA Cup win.

But the Brazilian told ChelseaTV: “This is the past. We need to win again. I have the hunger to win.

“Of course I want to win the Premier League, and of course I want to win all the titles again. I am here because I have ambition to play for a big club, and when you play for a big club, you need to think about winning every single match.

“I’m very happy to be here again. It’s fantastic to have this second opportunity to play for this club. I love this club, so that’s why I am here. Let’s try to continue the nice history with a lot of joy and try to get success.

“It will be an amazing opportunity to show to the fans again how I love this club and how I love to play for this club. I cannot wait to wear the shirt and play at Stamford Bridge again.”
